As with other wines in this flight tasted at the domaine, it was tricky to discern what was on offer in the bottle. This red Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru had an initial celery nose which then woke up and switched colour code to red currants. A tad chewy on the palate, it is well-constructued but not really enjoyable... certainly no thrill factor. Perhaps 2012 was a tough vintage for wines from the lesser appellations? Scores 18-20/30 for a Pernand 1er Cru.
